Dont pass it up, he is one of the last of the Masters and still sounds amazing. I'm driving up to the Nevada show.

I have a question for you folks - were you into jazz before the dead, simultaneously, or post? The reason I ask is because there was some stuff I listened to and liked, but I think the boys trained my ear to more fully enjoy and appreciate jazz. As a non-musician (I'm woefully inept), my deep love of jazz developed after seeing many, many nights of Jer. He said Coltrane was the biggest influence on his phrasing (at least in the playbill for the lunt-fontane shows). Just curious if others found their way to jazz thru the boys. Still can't believe miles opened (seems so wrong)

I listened to jazz before I learned about Grateful Dead music. Sonny Rollins was the first jazz performer who really caught my ear, then Charlie Parker. I became fascinated by what they did, but I was pretty young, too-12 to 15 years old-and people that age can be both fickle about their personal tastes and less than enthusiastic about doing their homework. The result was that I lost touch with jazz over the years, which is probably obvious considering the fact that I wasn't absolutely certain yesterday if Rollins is even still alive. I'm happy to learn not only that he is, but that he still gigs, too.
